Today has been a MONTH!

I can't believe today has been a month since we got married! I feel like we just got married last week LOL  Time really flies. We received our marriage certificate last week in the mail. Arrived pretty quick from when I ordered it online (got it in 5 days) and I was so so excited to see that official document LOL A word of caution for California brides not sure about other states, but make sure you go to Social Security FIRST then the DMV. The DMV will not change your name without a print out from Social Security! Just a little tip in case you didn't know :)

  • Congrats!! Time does fly by! I hope all is well so far! I'm loving the married life its a great new journey so far, but i kinda miss all the planning and stressing lol. Its funny how we all worry and stress about the big day so much, now i look back and i'm so glad i made all the decisions i did. What, you didn't receive your Marriage Certificate on the same day?? We got our's the same day, i just haven't had time to change my name yet but I'm going to social security office next week and then dmv right after, then i'm 100% locked in lol.  Have you adjusted to calling him your husband yet? I'm still working on it but its catching on quicker then i thought =)  ....So, have you received all your pictures yet? I'm still waiting anxiously!! its driving me crazy cus my family didn't get the best shots so i feel so unsatisfied!

    Are you sure you received yours the same day? The one we received same day is only the 'souvenir' one that the chapel gives to you. You need to order the real one from the recorders office which that certificate has the official stamp and seal on and is legit.
    I really miss all the planning and stressing too! We got back and I was like what am I gonna do now?! LOL I'm still adjusting to calling him my husband though! We were shopping this one day and the girl told me 'are you ready'? And I told her, 'oh not yet I'm waiting for my Fiance'! LOL I caught myself at that moment and said OMG he's my husband!! LOL We did get all of our pictures and now I'm stressing over which ones I want enlarged, which ones in what size yada yada. I just put an order in with Shutterfly yesterday for their 8x8 hardcover photobook I made with all the professional pictures so I can't wait to see how that turns out!

    LOL I'm glad I saved your life, time and money you would have wasted going to social security and being rejected with the souvenir certificate! I'm surprised the chapel didn't tell you that it was just a keepsake. Our officiant even told us once he handed us the keepsake one that it isn't the legit one. That we would need to wait 2 weeks before ordering it online. We got married on the 26th and he filed it with the recorder on the 30th.  The website says it takes 7-10 business days to receive but we got ours in 5 days which surprised me because I figured it would take the 10 days to arrive.

  • thank you so so much!! you know they prob told me but i showed up to the alter 5 min before the ceremony so i prob wasn't paying attention to it everything; lol. how many did you order? i think i will order 2 just in case. the SSA and DMV will not keep this correct? its just proof that we are married correct?

    I just ordered one because if you lose it, you could always order another but doesn't hurt to have backup. No, neither place keeps it they just need to see it for proof :) Yeah see that's why they should tell you those things about the certificate AFTER the ceremony because your usually not in the right frame of mind before it takes place! lol
